So agreed Fehr is counting on the Owners continuing to keep coming back to the table and deciding to take back less in their demands with each passing negotiation (a pattern that we have all seen has been occurring). This in Owners hopes of ending their lockout, and Fehr not calling their bluff that they will not risk cancelling the season and suffer the consequences of their own greed long term in their market.
You're joking right?

Half of the teams in the league are losing LESS money this year than they did a year ago, when we had hockey?
